Most of the games that follow require more than one person to play so find a friend or associate who is learning English to play with you!
You have to guess of what thing another person is thinking by asking him or her at most 20 yes/no type questions. If no one guesses the answer after 20 tries, the answer is revealed. A "yes" answer earns the questioner another chance to ask, a "no" passes the asking on to the next player.
